CHARLESTON, MO (KFVS) - A Charleston, Missouri man is accused of trying to assault his ex-girlfriend.

Kibrandon L. Coleman, 18, was charged with attempted burglary, two counts of assault second, domestic assault and resisting arrest.

Additional charges are possible.

According to Director Robert E. Hearnes with the Charleston Department of Public Safety, a woman called at about 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, January 10 and reported that her ex-boyfriend threatened her and allegedly came to her house to assault her.

Later the agency received a second call from the home about a disturbance.

As an officer arrived at the home, Hearnes said the officer saw the ex-boyfriend running away.

The officer tried to stop the man, who was a suspect, but Hearnes said the man tried to get away.

The man, identified as Coleman, was arrested a short time later.

According to officers, Coleman allegedly went to the home to assault his ex-girlfriend.

As he approached the home, officers say a man and woman tried to stop him in the yard.

Coleman allegedly assaulted both of them and tried to get into the home where his ex-girlfriend was located.

Before Coleman could get inside, Hearnes said one of the family members from the yard pulled out a gun and fired at Coleman.

According to Hearnes, Coleman was not hit, but instantly fan from the area.

Coleman is being held in the Mississippi County Jail with a $500,000 bond.

Hearnes said Coleman was released from the Department of Corrections in December after being sentenced to a 120-day shock probation for several burglaries.
